Cookie Policy

We use cookies on our website for a variety of reasons. We want our website to be as informative, personal, and user friendly as possible and cookies help us to achieve that goal.

Please note that no attempts are made to identify individual users, store personal information and cookies cannot harm your computer.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Please see information about how to do this below, however, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

THE COOKIES VOYAGES JULES VERNE USE


Q. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple, tiny text file that is stored on a web browser when you visit a website that is incapable of performing any tasks or functions. When you revisit a web page, your browser checks to see if any cookies that are stored on your computer are valid ones for the page you are visiting. If they are, the information contained within them is sent back to that webserver.

Without cookies, you could visit two web pages and the website would not connect that you have seen both pages. It would look at the visits individually. Cookies will allow you to book a tour online or order a brochure. Voyages Jules Verne uses cookies mainly because they make the browsing experience more efficient, enjoyable and provide relevant content.

Q. Are cookies dangerous?

No. Cookies are small pieces of text. It is not a program, cannot be used as a virus or access your hard drive, and no other website can use it. Your browser will only share information in the cookie from the website that provided it.

Modern browsers allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives. To learn more about cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org

Q. Why do we use cookies?

Cookies let us identify the device you are using and how you use our website – but not you personally. They are essential for many features of our website to work, help us identify and resolve errors, monitor web traffic and identify which pages are being used to help us analyse data and improve our site. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and they in no way give us any information about you.

Our cookies’ key features allow you to:

  • Request our travel brochures by post
  • Collect information and surveys so Voyages Jules Verne can learn more about how you use our website and improve your online experience.
  • Provide you with relevant prices and offers on our own website and through our marketing activity.
  • Allow you to share tours you are interested in among your choice of social media channels

Voyages Jules Verne has good relationships with a small number of carefully selected suppliers who may also set cookies on behalf of us in order to improve our website and deliver information and offers that are relevant to you. If you would like more information about the cookies used by these suppliers, please see below.
